Title: The Thing

So The Thing currently consists of three movies, with a fourth maybe on the way.  All adaptations of Who Goes There? by Joseph Campbell.

The Thing From Another World (1951)

I need to see this again, but it's a classic.

The Thing (1982)

Everybody loves this one.  Masterpiece.

The Thing (2011)

I actually like this, but it's a shame they decided to go with cgi over practical effects.

Untitled Thing remake (????)

I believe the new film is being penned after the 82's book companion. Which was only unearthed last year or 2018 from what I saw.

If I'm correct.

The very original film is beyond boring in my opinion. And aged horridly. Muuuch better horror films from that era to watch instead.

Be good if it is based upon the book thus make it a true sequel

As for the 1982 being boring  :cantlook:
